"Sure, I got a secret. More'n one. Don't seem likely I'd tell 'em to you, do it? Anyone off Dyton Colony know's better'n to talk to strangers."
― River, talking to Badger, in "Shindig"

Dyton is a border world made habitable and colonized through judicious use of convicts looking to reduce their prison sentences. The first and largest colony on the moon built up literally on and around a terraforming platform, which is still in operation and working to purify the Thames River. In a model that would be followed by other colonies, spaceport facilities were built at the top of the platform where they can be tightly regulated. From there, homes and businesses are crowded together in successive 'rings', stepping down the massive platform until they reach the ground. The center of the colony is a congested cityscape, with towering living complexes standing side by side with sweatshops and industrial factories. Slum areas seem to extend in every direction around that, until they give way to an arid, unwelcoming wasteland. The city is almost always blanketed in smog, and has a reputation as a rough, unpleasant place. Two other colonies have been established, which manage to take a step or two up in quality of living but still aren't the kind of place anyone would go to unless they had to. Natives of Dyton Colony can be identified by their notable - East End, London - accent.
